. >>> from nbc news, the state of the union address. live from washington, here is brian williams. >> good evening from capitol hill. it is the third time he has spoken to a joint session of congress, but it is the first time as president that barack obama has delivered the state of the union address. it is safe to say it is a different speech than the one he might have delivered a week or so ago before a republican won special election to the seat held by ted kennedy in massachusetts for almost half a century. outside of washington in america, the voters are angry and the president knows it. there is some fury over bailouts and big bankers and big bonuses and no jobs. tonight, at the end of his first year in office, he gets to sum up the job and look at the future. as you can see, the chamber is already filling as members of the cab a net and white house staff file in. the first lady, michelle obama, is greeting her guests in the first lady's box in the gallery. for our coverage, david gregory and andrea mitchell are in the studio. chuck todd across town in the nbc washington new

ining that national security front. for that, we go to pete williams in our washington newsroom. pete? >> brian, the department of homeland security says it's taking additional steps to increase aviation security. we're told this is in response to new intelligence indicating that al qaeda in yemen is planning another attack on the u.s. these steps include variations on what's been done since the discovery of the christmas-day bomb plot. the homeland security secretary janet napolitano says these new measures will increase the time it takes to get through security, especially for flights from overseas into the u.s., brian. >> all right. pete williams on wt is now the other story we'll be covering when we join you for nbc "nightly news" on this nbc station later this evening. as we continue our coverage of this continuing humanitarian disaster, the aftermath of the 7.0 earthquake here in haiti. for my colleagues, i'm brian williams. nbc news, port-au-prince, haiti. >>> welcome back here to "news4 at 4." more now on our coverage of the earthquake in haiti. amid reports that the death tol
majority is broken. we're closer to the state known as gridlock that takes washington out of the investment equation. a brown victory could spell the end of health care reform. but that's only just the beginning. this is about more than health care. as you can see from the fact that the whole market is rallying, not just health care stocks. the truth is -- let's cut to the truth. all right? not a lot of talk about the truth. let's give you some truth here. the market doesn't like the agenda president obama and the current democrat regime. they see it at pro labor making it easier to unionize against the banks and walmart. whatever your feelings on organized labor the interest of unions are opposed to those of the shareholders, you. that's why pundits say to look for the union label and sell. we don't invest in shares the aflcio or mime workers. we invest when unions are weak? don't like it? take your profits from the scott brown, slash, obama repudiation ral land donate to the pension fund for all i care. how about the iww? obama's agenda a favors stopping pollution over jump starting the e
